Standing on a city street corner waiting for a bus can be more risky than you think, especially if you and your child are dressed in a black burka in an attempt to practice your muslim customs and beliefs.
Iska Corey and her daughter Iskatoon, age 10 were simply waiting for local bus 56 on the corner of Deerborn Avenue and Mulberry Court when a nearsighted municipal trash collector stepped off the garbage truck and promptly threw a surprised Iska and Iskatoon into the trash dumpster bin at the rear of the truck, two other black garbed objects were hastilly thrown in on top of them before they could yell for help.
It wasn’t until almost a dozen stops later that trash collector Bwanai Mogotobo, age 66, noticed movement and an arm waving in the pile of refuse. He immediately stopped the truck helping a very irate Iska out of the stinking garbage pile. Mogotobo was placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation by the city. The two women were taken to Ali Baba Islamic Hospital for a complete examination and later released.
Mogotobo, who has been with the city for 44 years, said he’s seen nothing like it before. “Now, I once threw a hippie in the trash back in 1972 for smelling like a turd pile, but this surprised me!”
A local CAIR representative filed a complaint with the city citing ‘severe Islamaphobia’ and reckless endangerment. The city has offered to issue poka-dotted garbage bags so future mistakes can’t happen.
Iska and her daughter were unhurt and the city has offered to reimburse their dry cleaner for any expenses. According to Iska it was ‘Allah’s will’ that escaped unharmed and vows never to stand next to any trash bags again.
